    I would definitely have to say Athlon.

    And as long as you know that an amd 1800ghz is not called xp 1800 if there is such a thing.

    there is such a thing :)

    1.8ghz athlon is not an 1800+ but rather a 2200+

    amd performance rating...

    both a 1.8ghz athlon and athlon xp 1800+ are quite a bit faster than a celeron 2ghz.

    I ran pcmark2002 the other day. My 2200+ beat a 2.5pentium in the comparison chart. However a 1900+ beat me out on the same chart for some reason. Go figure.

    the setups do matter...

    I work on a 2200+ and a 2.4 ghz intel side by side @ work and trust me... there is no comparison...

    sure you can oc and what not but for office use @ stock speeds... amd has better iq for the apps we use..

    AMD is certainly better.

    You really can't compare an Athlon XP to a Celeron, come on! :p

    The Athlon is definitely a better option. The L2 cache plays a big role there. My Pentium III outperforms Celerons with higher clock speeds. ;)
